Re: [scrumdevelopment] History of Scrum
- Hi Dan:
I like what you wrote, but it does feel more like a personal evolution
(Your personal practice? Your personal understanding?) than an
accurate history of Scrum. Based on my own observations, what you
describe as "Scrum I" is what most people are still doing and is
closest to what the "Scrum Guide" describes. Your "Scrum II" is
similar to what some Scrum teams do and what most XP teams do.
Your "Scrum III" sounds like a partial implementation of Kanban (If
you fully implemented Kanban you could throw away the timebox
altogether.) I don't know of many Scrum teams that began implementing
Kanban in 2007. Most of the ones I know are starting to look at it
now, or it might still not be on their radar screen. In either case I
think calling Kanban part of the definition of Scrum is way premature.
